So, to check your IMEI- go to settings->about phone->phone status or something like that. Hopefully you should see the number there. If it's wrong, void, null etc, then Houston, you have a problem.
About the rollback. Well, when you installed the custom recovery, it unlocked several options for you. Not only does it allow you to install custom ROMs, mods etc but it also allows you to backup a recovery image of your device. Frankly, that's the first thing you should do. Create at least one complete backup involving not just the system but all the sensitive partitions like the EFS partition, radio partition (the ones that will reduce your phone into a wifi-only tablet if damaged). Hopefully you did that and you still have the recovery image somewhere. Then you should just boot into the recovery by holding a certain googlable key combination when powering up the device and use the image to easily restore your device to a previous state.
If you don't have any, then check your IMEI etc and I would suggest searching the "back to stock" thread on XDA, picking suitable official ROM for your device and flash it manually. Hopefully it will work and if your IMEI is damaged, most guides recommend you to restore it from an official ROM anyway.

I'm a bit worried that your sim card doesn't work anymore. That could be caused by a corrupt IMEI. That is a serious problem. Still possible to repair, but serious. So check if the system recognizes the IMEI of your device if you will.
But okay. I guess that when you installed the TWRP you didn't create a complete backup, did you? If you did, start the recovery and roll back to your old build. Then you can make sure you did everything right and possibly try again.
But why CM? Even if you can't get an OTA, you could still get the official Lollipop ROM through the LG PC Suite or through the LG flashtool (search for G2 back to stock thread on XDA).

Hello guys! I'm in trouble!
My lg g2 (vs980) is not universal, and I'm from Nigeria which makes it difficult for me to get OTA updates so I decided to look for an alternative way of getting lollipop. So I followed the steps in a youtube video by a developer (probably from xda). Haven rooted my phone with stump, I downloaded cm12, gapps, efs back up thread, autorec, some jellybean radios and latest twrp recovery all from xda developers forum. Following the guidelines, I install autorec and "downgraded my boot older", then I boot into recovery, flash the latest twrp, whip data as instructed, flash the cm12, flash the gapps, everything as instructed and then I reboot. I don't know what went wrong.
Happy I was, as here comes the lollipop but little did I know that this indeed would be my worst experience on a device ever.
My sim card doesn't show anymore, Media; videos and music no longer play - in fact, anything that has to do with sound even from third part no longer works, games no longer play at all and camera no longer works. The only thing that works well is the wifi connections with which I'm able to send this email now. I consider the fact that autorotation, auto brightness, knock on, slide aside and quick window are not working as minor problems but obviously, I can't do without the earlier ones mentioned. Pls I seriously need help on either how to resolve those issues or better steal, how to go back to my normal lovable lg g2 that I used to know. Whoever has any idea Pls help me, I can't use my phone for anything. I really missed my phone and I need it back. Thanks, looking forward to ur help.
i hope lg fix camera autofocus issue ....on 5.0.2 on D800 i dont know if happens the same on other varians....when using kitkat it focus faster and sharper...but with lollipop it is soft and doesnt focus properly some times u focus something and keeping the camera steady refocus and gets blurry then it focus right again but it is jut few times not alway but for me is an issue anyway ... not counting that shooter speed is really slow.. even moto g 1rst gen is faster than the G2 and it is the only thing makes me get mad with it ... it has nothing to do being the phone f 2.4 since old iphone 4 is 2.6 or 2.8 if im not wrong and takes faster pictures even old gen xperia play takes faster pictures ..... i dont know what is that about ...... but even even a g2 mini has a faster focus...... i know this is not a defective phone due to im not anly one xperincing this. so kitkat is beter for G2 camera and i hope a 5.1.1 or 6.0 version could do something

AnonD-501323, 16 Feb 2016 Dont know all the tech stuff. But I can tell you that texting with this phone is awful. Keys ... moreI will recommend u to use swiftkey keyboard. Its best with lots of classy themes.. and top of that its free on playstore.
I'm using Lg g2 D800 and the hotsport is not opening, please what might be the solution?
Last month I bought a refurbished LG G2 Korean version and I have to say, this is a deal in which is awesome in every single way, even in 2016! Korean version is kind of one of a kind unique from the other ones, they surprisingly have SD card slot (Model F320L), an antenna which actually works as a signal booster and a removal battery. Inside this old boy is yet another surprising experience, with Android 5.0.1 L and a hot Snapdragon 800. Well after those there's the downside, the phone itself heats up like a hot pan. The battery in this version is smaller at 2610mAh and the build in software of Korean version annoys you to the edge, even after uninstalling those (rooted) they never failed to reinstall itself BACK from the Playstore without permission.
In conclusion, this 3 years old bad boy is still the king of >200 dollars smartphones. Think about it, a phone with a better version of the normal Android Lolipop and a CPU which was the king of CPUs. I have to say it is hard to find a Korean version if you want the SD card slot but, once you do, 100% no regrets:).......
P.S. the 2610mAh battery is still very strong so don't worry about it.
[deleted post]Your not mad then why u used any third apps and security also android allways secured and productable if you want then try real sw into any service
That's all Thanks and lot.....
Thats all o nice then it's really not possible all products are very nice it's
Like that LG (Life is good) really.

if your LG G2 getting hot, you have to uninstall apps Cleans master and AVG anti virus or the other anti virus, and then you have to clean your phone cached data ( setting, general, storage and then you klik cached data and you klik OK)....I am sure your phone will be back to normal n very fast.

If so, I wouldn't recommend it as it will void the warranty. You can pry the back cover off, unscrew a few screws, disconnect two flex-cables and remove a small secondary PCB to get to the battery. Look the process up on youtube. It is doable but not easy.
You should scrutinize your usage pattern and the risks of your average day to see which case would be fitting for you. I just got a noname flip cover and a sheet of hardened glass on the display. So far the phone survived in near-pristine condition. There are some really heavy and rugged cases like the Otterbox series but still, nothing is impervious and even with the biggest, baddest phone-protector you take a risk every time you drop the phone. More so I believe it may even be a bit counterproductive as the use of a heavy-duty case can indulge you in a false sense of security and encourage riskier behavior.
